Some passengers too easily ignored

 

 

“The difference between talking on your cell phone while driving and speaking with a passenger is huge. The person on the other end of the cell phone is chattering away, oblivious.”   —  Marilyn vos Savant

This mother and son duet were making great strides walking down the street after shopping at a nearby market when suddenly the woman’s phone rang and all progress halted. For five minutes the woman stood flamingo-like on one leg and chatted with her invisible friend while her ignored son tried everything her could to regain her attention. The mother eventually concluded her cell phone conversation and the little boy gave her a sullen look. Sometimes you just have to prioritize your real life attentions.  -gc

  1. I went to restaurant yesterday with my son and he looked at his cell phone all the time apart from eating.

    • Family gatherings these days have certainly changed. Last Thanksgiving Visited with the grand children and everyone at the table was occupied using their cell phones even while saying grace. Oh well..THank goodness the batteries eventually need recharging. It might provide a break in the day’s occupation.

  3. I have to wonder what happened to being in the present moment. It’s almost like technology has erased our sense of being in the now.

    • Thank you for your thoughts. In today’s uncertain world we all crave to forget the “present” moment but while we are actively seeking this mental escape we should still be mindful of those people who make us who we are. Enjoy the day.
